I can’t wait to continue reading this book. From the opening line, I was immediately drawn in. The beautiful description of Hassan sitting silent in prayer and the seamless introduction of the magical elements made me want to continue reading. Fatima’s point of view is interesting and both she and Hassan feel very real.

I love historical fantasy, and this is a setting I’ve never seen before. Even though the story is set in Western Europe, it’s from the point of view of characters that history usually chooses to ignore. I can tell that author has done her research and respects the culture she is writing about. This, combined with her skillful craft, made me trust Wilson immediately, and I look forward to finishing the book.
